Hearst Communications
Hearst Communications
Inc., often referred to simply as Hearst, is an American mass media and business information conglomerate based in New York City, New York.[3] Hearst owns a wide variety of newspapers, magazines, television channels, and television stations, including the San Francisco Chronicle, the Houston Chronicle, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, 50% of broadcasting firm A&E Networks,[4] and 20% of the sports broadcaster ESPN—the last two both co-owned with The Walt Disney Company. Despite being better known for the above media holdings, Hearst makes most of its profits in the business information section, where it owns companies including First Databank, Homecare Homebase, MOTOR Information Systems, 80% of Fitch Ratings, and others.[5] The Hearst company is based in the Hearst Tower in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. The company was founded by William Randolph Hearst

Trustees of William Randolph Hearst's will[edit] Under William Randolph Hearst's will, a common board of thirteen trustees (its composition fixed at five family members and eight outsiders) administers the Hearst Foundation, the William Randolph Hearst Foundation, and the trust that owns (and selects the 24-member board of) the Hearst Corporation (immediate parent of Hearst Communications which shares the same officers). The foundations shared ownership until tax law changed to prevent this.[6] As of 2017, the trustees are:[7] Family members[edit]

Anissa Boudjakdji Balson, granddaughter of fifth son, David Whitmire Hearst Sr. Lisa Hearst Hagerman, granddaughter of third son, John Randolph Hearst Sr. George Randolph Hearst III, grandson of Hearst's eldest son, George Randolph Hearst Sr., and publisher of the Albany Times Union William Randolph Hearst
William Randolph Hearst
III, son of second son, William Randolph Hearst Jr., and chairman of the board of the corporation Virginia Hearst Randt, daughter of late former chairman and fourth son, Randolph Apperson Hearst

Non-family members[edit]

James M. Asher, chief legal and development officer of the corporation David J. Barrett, former chief executive officer of Hearst Television, Inc. Frank A. Bennack Jr., former chief executive officer and executive vice chairman of the corporation John G. Conomikes, former executive of the corporation Gilbert C. Maurer, former chief operating officer of the corporation and former president of Hearst Magazines Mark F. Miller, former executive vice president of Hearst Magazines Mitchell Scherzer, senior vice president and chief financial officer of the corporation Steven R. Swartz, president and chief executive officer of the corporation

The trust dissolves when all family members alive at the time of Hearst's death in August 1951 have died. History[edit] The formative years[edit] In 1880, George Hearst
George Hearst
(1820–1891), mining entrepreneur, American publisher, and U.S. senator, entered the newspaper business, acquiring the San Francisco Daily Examiner. On March 4, 1887, he turned the Examiner over to his son, 23-year-old William Randolph Hearst. The newly appointed editor and publisher transformed the sedate Examiner into "The Monarch of the Dailies": he acquired the most advanced printing equipment of his day, substantially revised the newspaper’s appearance, and hired the best journalists he could find. He pushed his staff to write exciting news stories, and wrote editorials worded with force and conviction that enlivened the paper. Within a few years, the new Examiner was a success. In 1895, Hearst purchased the New York Journal, laying the foundation for one of the major newspaper dynasties in American history. He established Hearst's Chicago American
Chicago American
in 1900, renamed the morning edition of the New York Journal
New York Journal
as the New York American in 1901. The Los Angeles Examiner was launched in 1903 followed by the Boston American one year later. Hearst experimented with every aspect of newspaper publishing, from page layouts to editorial crusades. His newspapers introduced innovations such as multi-color presses, halftone photographs on newsprint, comic sections printed in color, and wire syndication of news copy. Stories by Hearst correspondents from around the world were sold to other newspapers, giving rise to the Hearst International News Service and the Universal wire service. In 1903, Hearst Magazines was begun with the publication of Motor magazine. Within the next 10 years Hearst acquired several popular titles, starting in 1905 with Cosmopolitan and Good Housekeeping
Good Housekeeping
in 1911. Also in 1911, Hearst bought a middling monthly magazine called World To-Day, which in April 1912 he renamed Hearst's Magazine. In June 1914, its title was shortened to Hearst's, and it was ultimately retitled Hearst's International in May 1922. In 1953 Hearst Magazines bought Sports Afield
Sports Afield
magazine which it kept until 1999 when it was sold to Robert E. Petersen. Hearst began producing film feature in the mid-1910s, creating one of the earliest animation studios: the International Film Service. While the studio folded quickly, Hearst would regularly make film adaptations of his comic strips in collaboration with Hollywood studios until the late 1950s, though most of them have become lost films, as those had to be destroyed after 10 years after their release; a precautionary measure by Hearst in case the films didn't do well, to minimize the impact of any flop on said comic's popularity. Hearst established Cosmopolitan Pictures in the 1920s, distributing his films under the newly created Metro Goldwyn Mayer. In 1929, Hearst and MGM created the Hearst Metrotone newsreels. In order to spare serious cutbacks at San Simeon, Hearst merged Hearst's International magazine with Cosmopolitan effective March 1925, calling it Hearst's International combined with Cosmopolitan. The Cosmopolitan title on the cover remained at a typeface of 84 points, over a 20-year time span, while the typeface of the Hearst's International decreased from 36 points to a barely legible 12 points. Hearst died in 1951, and the Hearst's International disappeared from the magazine cover altogether in April 1952.[8] The golden era[edit]

In the 1920s and 1930s, Hearst owned the biggest media conglomerate in the world. Apart from having highly circulated magazines and owning 28 newspapers in 18 major cities from coast to coast (many of them under either the American or Examiner banners), read by one out of four Americans each day, Hearst also began acquiring radio stations to complement his papers. After purchasing the Atlanta Georgian
Atlanta Georgian
in 1912 along with the San Francisco Call and the San Francisco Post in 1913, Hearst acquired the Boston Advertiser
Boston Advertiser
and the Washington Times (unrelated to the present-day paper) in 1917, followed by the Chicago Herald in 1918 (resulting in the Herald-Examiner) and the Washington Herald
Washington Herald
in 1922. Beginning in 1921, the company extended its reach, establishing or acquiring the Detroit Times, the Boston Record (turning the Advertiser into a tabloid), the Milwaukee Telegram and Wisconsin News, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
(1921), the Albany Times-Union, the Rochester Journal and American, the Syracuse Telegram
Syracuse Telegram
and American, the Los Angeles Herald (1922), the Baltimore News
Baltimore News
and American, the Rochester Post-Express (1923), the San Antonio Light
San Antonio Light
and the New York Mirror (1924). In 1924 he also merged his Milwaukee operations with the Pfister family, owners of The Milwaukee Sentinel. Hearst owned the evening Wisconsin News while the Pfisters kept the Sentinel adding Hearst's features from the now-folded Telegram. In 1925, Hearst sold the Syracuse Telegram
Syracuse Telegram
to the owners of the Syracuse Journal, while selling the New York Mirror
New York Mirror
in 1928. However, he kept overseeing both papers' operations, eventually buying back the Daily Mirror in 1932. In 1927, Hearst acquired the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, which he switched with associate Paul Block in exchange for the Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph. That same year he also acquired the Omaha Bee
Omaha Bee
and News. In 1929, Hearst closed the Boston Advertiser (becoming the name for the Sunday American until 1972) and acquired the San Francisco Bulletin merging it with the Call & Post. In late 1931 he also bought the Los Angeles Evening Express, forming the Herald-Express. In 1935, the Baltimore News
Baltimore News
bought E.W. Scripps' Baltimore
Baltimore
Post, creating the Baltimore
Baltimore
News-Post. Retrenching after the Great Depression[edit] The Great Depression
Great Depression
hit Hearst hard, forcing him to sell the Washington Times and Herald to Eleanor "Cissy" Patterson (of the McCormick-Patterson family that owned the Chicago Tribune) in 1939 who merged them together into the Washington Times-Herald. That year he also bought the Milwaukee Sentinel from Block (who bought it from the Pfisters in 1929), absorbing his afternoon Wisconsin News into the morning publication. Also in 1939, he sold the Atlanta Georgian
Atlanta Georgian
to Cox Newspapers, which merged it with the Atlanta Journal. Hearst, with his chain now owned by his creditors after a 1937 liquidation, also had to merge some of his morning papers into his afternoon papers: the morning Herald-Examiner and the afternoon American into the Herald-American in Chicago in 1939, and in 1937 the Evening Journal and the morning American into the Journal-American in New York, the same year the Omaha Bee-News was sold to the World-Herald. Abandoning the morning market was harmful in the long run for Hearst's media empire as most of his remaining newspapers became afternoon papers. Newspapers in Rochester, Syracuse and Fort Worth were sold off or shut down. Afternoon papers were a profitable business in pre-television days, often outselling their morning counterparts featuring stock market information in early editions, while later editions were heavy on sporting news with results of baseball games and horse races. Afternoon papers also benefited from continuous reports from the battlefront during World War II. After the war however, both television news and suburbs experienced an explosive growth; thus, evening papers were more affected than those published in the morning, whose circulation remained stable while their afternoon counterparts' sales plummeted. Another major blow was the fact that beginning in the 1950s, football and baseball games were being played later in the afternoon and now stretched through early in the evening, preventing afternoon papers from publishing all the results. In 1947, Hearst produced an early television newscast for the DuMont Television Network: I.N.S. Telenews, and in 1948 he became the owner of one of the first television stations in the country, WBAL-TV
WBAL-TV
in Baltimore. The earnings of Hearst's three morning papers, the San Francisco Examiner, the Los Angeles Examiner, and The Milwaukee Sentinel, had to finance the company's money-losing afternoon publications, among those the Los Angeles Herald-Express, the New York Journal-American, and the Chicago American. The latter paper was sold in 1956 to the Chicago Tribune's owners (who continued and later changed it to the tabloid-size Chicago Today in 1969, and closed it in 1974). Hearst also sold the Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph
Pittsburgh Sun-Telegraph
(merged with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) and the Detroit Times (merged with the Detroit News) in 1960 and the Milwaukee Sentinel (which merged with the afternoon Milwaukee Journal) in 1962 after a lengthy strike, the same year Hearst's L.A. papers - the morning Examiner and the afternoon Herald-Express - were merged into the evening Los Angeles Herald-Examiner. The 1962-63 New York City
New York City
newspaper strike left Manhattan with no papers for many months, which affected the Journal-American. The Boston Record and the Evening American were merged in 1961 as the Record-American. In 1964, the Baltimore News-Post became the Baltimore
Baltimore
News-American. In 1958, Hearst's International News Service merged with E.W. Scripps' United Press, forming United Press
United Press
International as a response to the growth of the Associated Press
Associated Press
and Reuters. The following year Scripps-Howard's San Francisco News merged with Hearst's afternoon San Francisco Call-Bulletin. Beginning in 1965, the Hearst Corporation began recurring Joint Operating Agreements ("JOA"s); the first reached with the DeYoung family, proprietors of the afternoon San Francisco Chronicle, which began to produce a joint Sunday edition with the Examiner, which turned into an evening publication, folding the News-Call-Bulletin. The following year, the Journal-American reached another JOA with another two landmark New York City
New York City
papers: the Herald-Tribune and Scripps-Howard's World-Telegram and Sun, thus forming the New York World Journal Tribune (recalling the names of the city's mid-market dailies), which collapsed after only a few months. The 1962 merger of the Los Angeles papers had led to the sacking of many journalists who went on to stage a 10-year strike in 1967, which ended up accelerating the pace of the company's sinking.

shifts[edit] In 1982, the company sold the Boston Herald
Boston Herald
American (the result of the 1972 merger of Hearst's Record-American & Advertiser with the Herald-Traveler), to Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, which promptly renamed the paper as The Boston Herald, competing to this day with the Boston Globe). In 1986, Hearst bought the Houston Chronicle
Houston Chronicle
and that year closed the 213-year-old Baltimore
Baltimore
News-American after a failed attempt to obtain a JOA with the family publishers of The Baltimore
Baltimore
Sun - A.S. Abell Company - which coincidentally sold its paper several days later to the Times-Mirror syndicate of the Chandlers' Los Angeles Times, also competitor to the evening Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, which folded in 1989. In 1993, the San Antonio Light
San Antonio Light
was shut down after Hearst purchased its rival, the San Antonio Express-News
San Antonio Express-News
from Murdoch. On November 8, 1990, Hearst Corporation acquired the remaining 20% stake of ESPN, Inc. from RJR Nabisco
RJR Nabisco
for a price estimated between $165 million and $175 million.[9] The other 80% has been owned by The Walt Disney Company since 1996. Over the last 25 years, the ESPN investment is said to have accounted for at least 50% of total Hearst Corp profits and is worth at least $13 billion.[10] In 2000, the Hearst Corp. pulled another "switcheroo" by selling its flagship and "Monarch of the Dailies", the afternoon San Francisco Examiner, and acquiring the long-time competing but now larger morning paper, the San Francisco Chronicle
San Francisco Chronicle
from the Charles de Young family. The San Francisco Examiner
San Francisco Examiner
is now published as a daily freesheet. In December 2003, Marvel Entertainment
Marvel Entertainment
acquired Cover Concepts from Hearst, to extend Marvel's demographic reach among public school children.[11] In 2009, A&E Networks acquired Lifetime Entertainment Services, with Hearst ownership increasing to 42%.[12][13] In 2009, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
switched to a digital-only format, leaving the Albany Times-Union
Albany Times-Union
as the only remaining Hearst paper from its golden age still owned by the company.[citation needed] In 2010, Hearst acquired digital marketing agency iCrossing.[14] In 2011, Hearst absorbed more than 100 magazine titles from the Lagardere group for more than $700 million and became a challenger of Time Inc
Time Inc
ahead of Condé Nast. In December 2012, Hearst Corporation partnered again with NBCUniversal
NBCUniversal
to launch Esquire Network. On February 20, 2014, Hearst Magazines International appointed Gary Ellis to the new position, Chief Digital Officer.[15] That December, DreamWorks Animation
DreamWorks Animation
sold a 25% stake in AwesomenessTV
AwesomenessTV
for $81.25 million to Hearst.[16] In January 2017, Hearst announced that it had acquired a majority stake in Litton Entertainment. Its CEO, Dave Morgan, was a former employee of Hearst.[17][18] On January 23, 2017, Hearst announced that it has acquired the business operations of The Pioneer Group from fourth-generation family owners Jack and John Batdorff. The Pioneer Group was a Michigan-based communications network that circulates print and digital news to local communities across the state. In addition to daily newspapers, The Pioneer and Manistee News Advocate, Pioneer published three weekly papers and four local shopper publications, and operates a digital marketing services business. The acquisition brought Hearst Newspapers to publishing 19 daily and 61 weekly papers. Other 2017 acquisitions include the New Haven Register
New Haven Register
and associated papers from Digital First Media,[19][20] and the Alton, Illinois, Telegraph and Jacksonville, Illinois, Journal-Courier from Civitas Media.[21][22] In October 2017, Hearst announced it will acquire the magazine and book businesses of Rodale, with some sources reporting the purchase price as about $225 million. The transaction is expected to close in January following government approvals.[23][24] Chief executive officers[edit]

In 1880, George Hearst
George Hearst
entered the newspaper business, acquiring the San Francisco Daily Examiner. On March 4, 1887, he turned the Examiner over to his son, 23-year-old William Randolph Hearst, who was named editor and publisher. William Hearst died in 1951, at age 88. In 1951, Richard E. Berlin, who had served as president of the company since 1943, succeeded William Hearst as chief executive officer. Berlin retired in 1973.[25] William Randolph Hearst
William Randolph Hearst
Jr. claimed in 1991 that Berlin had suffered from Alzheimer's disease
Alzheimer's disease
starting in the mid-1960s and that caused him to shut down several Hearst newspapers without just cause.[26] From 1973-1975, Frank Massi, a longtime Hearst financial officer, served as president,[27] during which time he carried out a financial reorganization followed by an expansion program in the late 1970s. From 1975 to 1979, John R. Miller was Hearst president and chief executive officer.[28] Frank Bennack served as CEO and president from 1979 to 2002, when he became vice chairman, returning as CEO from 2008 to 2013, and remains executive vice chairman. Victor F. Ganzi served as president and CEO from 2002 to 2008. Steven Swartz has been president since 2012 and CEO since 2013.
